Flea market season is here
Summertime in Canada means days spent swimming, s’mores by the campfire, and backyard barbecues — but it's also prime season for antiquing! Across the country, antique and vintage dealers set up shop in empty fields, cultural centres and unused ice rinks in hopes to sell their wares to you. So visit your local flea market or antique show (see below) and be on the lookout for these five worth-it items.
Christie Antique Show, Dundas, ON. May 25 and Sept 7, 8 am to 5pm, $10.
10 acres of china, jewellery, golf items, tins, folk art, fine art, and furniture.
